We’ve all seen self-striping socks that feature semi-solid accents for heels, toes, and cuffs. What if we turn that around and use the self-striping for the accents instead? You get a whole new variety of ways to make projects that reflect your style and creativity!
Our new Striped Accent Shortie Sock Sets include a 50-gram skein of a semi-solid color coordinated with a 25-gram mini skein of one of our regular self-striping colorways. Use the self-striping mini to accent cuffs, toes, heels, or any part of the sock that makes you happy! And with a combined total of 75-grams of yarn, you’ll be able to push the definition of “shortie sock,” depending on the size of sock you enjoy wearing!
The sample socks shown in the second image used a total of 35 grams of the Bright Caribbean Blue semi-solid and 15 grams of the Never Not Color self-striping mini for the full pair of shortie socks that fit a US size 9 woman’s foot. We could have knit a third sock with the leftovers! (This colorway combo is not available for purchase at this time.)
We have a dozen semi-solid/stripes combinations to choose from on three of our most popular fingering weight yarn bases. (We’ve linked to the self-striping listing for colorways that are available as full skeins in the shop so that you can see the striping pattern of each.) Choose the letter from the drop down menu above that corresponds to the yarn combination below that you’d like to order, which will also show you a picture of that specific set:

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Note that color can (and likely will) vary between different bases and dye batches.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
